The 840 Pro is stunning. Samsung have created a completely in-house package including both the controller and their own new 21nm toggle mode NAND. On release (Oct '12) this was the fastest performing deep queue depth consumer grade SSD available. Fast forward six months (Apr '13) and the 840 Pro still holds both the random read/write deep queue depth speed records of 384 MB/s and 326 MB/s, impressive considering how fast the SSD space tends to move. There are no obvious weaknesses, in-fact the 840 pro takes first place in nearly all of the speed categories and is only seriously rivalled by one drive, the OCZ Vector. To conclude, in terms of both outright performance, particularly server orientated, and value for money the 256GB and 128GB 840 Pros are amongst the top handful of drives currently available. [Jun '13 SSDrivePro]

The SSDNow V+200 is one of the slowest SSD's we have seen recently. Its sequential and 4k read performance is the weakest we have seen to date. Even the sequential and 4k write speeds are amongst the lowest we have seen. The only above average performance metric for this drive is its deep queue depth write speed which clocked in at 207 MB/s. Rightfully the drive is priced lower than most of its competitors but that does not make up for its poor performance. There are far better deals to be had elsewhere. [Jan '13 SSDrivePro]
